Where Classical and Heavy Metal Intersect

At 24 years of age, acoustic and electric cellist Tina Guo is enjoying a varied career as a classical and heavy metal musician.  Equally devoted to both styles, Tina hopes to open the hearts and ears of audiences of these seemingly juxtaposing genres.  She balances the spiritual and technical eloquence of classical music in manipulating the music and emotion within a defined boundary, and the visceral excitement of paving a new path as a serious rock musician. In fact, Tina believes that these two genres have a lot in common musically. What do you think?

This beautifully produced video features Tina’s arrangement of Gabriel Faure’s Apres un Reve, along with the amazing puppet work of Eli Presser.  Absolutely gorgeous.

In stark contrast, this video presents her version of Flight of the Bumblebee with a metal band and electric cello.  The instrument used was custom designed for her by Yamaha.

Here’s an original Tina Guo composition called More Than Words.
